This show is a no-doubt five starer through out. Just want to note in addition to the other comments the Waves. Right with 3.13.99 for best stand alone.

My absolute favorite moment in music
you must have patience though. the iman goes on and on and on. it just keeps getting more psychedelic as it meanders.
and a note: jon was in the rarest of all forms this night. he was playing with one foot on his thigh for much of it, standing on top on various amps, jumping around everywhere, etc. it was truly a spectacular night. everyone, and i mean everyone, was into this show. i literally saw numerous people crying at this show, before and after. this is no joke. this is as good as they get. the iman before and after the pygmy(which is also very nice) is the best biscuits i have ever heard. building, precise, patient, PSYCHEDELIC, and beautiful in so many ways.
this night still goes down as the penultimate for many people in attendance, including the band.

This show is best known for it's monster I-MAN, but specifically for the jam from pygmy>i-man. this jam is the famous flab/slab jam, constructed around a groove with Barber saying Mohammed Ali quotes. this jam eventually was tweaked slightly and turned into the song "King of the World", now a staple of the Biscuits' repertoire. this show is great because you can hear the creation of a song from improvisation as it happened.
